Antietam Then & Now: Jacob Grove house in Sharpsburg, Md.

Large-format Then & Now images HERE.  | Like my blog on FACEBOOK

In the early-20th century image at left, we see the Jacob Grove house, site of Robert E. Lee's council of war the night of Sept. 17, 1862, on Main Street in Sharpsburg, Md. Note the dirt road. The Grove house and two other buildings in the old image remain standing today. For those unfamiliar with Sharpsburg, the excellent Nutter's Ice Cream store, established in 1996, is out of view just around the corner at left. Large scoops for little money!
